    Default Why was Reaver nerfed?

    Is someone able to explain me again why Reaver was nerfed? I just forgot it.

    I see rogues out there with over 15.000 aoe-damage per second. So Reaver aoe-damage couldn't be the reason.

    X-Healing is completely out of control. Even with the healing-reduction-buff they are able to heal a DD from 5% hp to 100% hp within less than two seconds. So the debuff cant be the reason.

    I see Reavers dieing like flys in 1:1 situation, because their only burst skill is interruptible and aborts after simple push-backs. So the ST-damage cant be the reason.

    I constantly see Reavers with over 3 Mio. damage and zero kills, because its just too easy to cleanse/reheal the dots. So again, the damage couldnt be the reason.

    I also dont think that the 3s stun every 30 seconds was the reason.

    So does anyone remember why Reaver was nerfed?!

    I only read "Nerf it" but no explainations why. Furthermore it was no nerf, it was a destruction of this specc.

    Blame Vladd, he makes **** way too op so ofc they're gonna get nerfed. When he buffs a spec it becomes godmode. Never "on par".

    If you think reaver is a dead class in pvp you haven't run into me. (floating my own boat here but no one listens to me hehe). Hybrid reaver is a boss ranged spec and I'm gonna say better then any tempest spec currently possible. One vs One I hold my own very well against most classes but I definitely don't win every matchup. This is pvp perspective only not pve. I spec to dominate and contribute most in WFS CQ and OWPVP........that last one is extinct.

    Dookagon is as follows 54 reaver 17 paragon 5 tempest. You never needed the crutch of viral stream to begin with.

    Baabadook@whereeverimatatthetime. DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK.

    Reaver is still annoying to deal with when you have people grouped up that the AOE debuffing can immensely help. It still tosses out the heal debuff, so if you've got WFs with ppl stacked up around, can still be effective.

    It's just not as stupid as it was before.

    I too wonder why they nerf reaver and its top aoe dps, top st dps, super mobile, max range uncleansable, dots that keep you in combat for 30 seconds playable at a high level with 3 buttons

    MM isn't nerfed because no one is crying about it.
    no one is crying about it because it is only the rogues that ever do the crying.
    reaver was nerfed because rogues cried.

    Top aoe damage, maybe yes.
    Top ST damage, only in the very beginning when the players didnt know how to handle Reavers in 1:1 situations. These times are over.
    Lots of buffs keep you in combat, at least you can capture flags and take runes with reaver dots. Some other dots (MM for example) are also not cleansable.
    Super mobile lol (pls check the skilltree again)

    Yes, Reaver was good, but now its dead flesh.
